We loved all your work and congratulations to Jane who won our fabulous prize of over £50 of Graph'It goodies!! Well done! Please email Nikky here to claim your prize and please grab your winners blinkies from the sidebar.

The winner of this week's challenge will win a fantastic prize worth over £30 which will include Graph'It markers and other stash from Premium Art Brands and Polkadoodles

Here is the fantastic inspiration our team have for you this week....we chose blonde hair as our theme because it can be a tricky combo to get right but with Graph'it markers we have one of the best selections of colours around which is perfect for colouring 'non yellow' blonde hair! ....

Faye....I sometimes find blondes difficult to colour, I end up with someone who looks like they have yellow hair, rather than blonde, so I really enjoyed the Challenge this week.
